FOCUS Film Festival

FOCUS Film Festival

The FOCUS Film Festival is NYU’s first ever film festival to amplify BIPOC storytellers. We are dedicated to supporting traditionally marginalized visions and voices. This festival is a celebratory space where we aim to come together as a community of changemakers, visionaries, and storytellers. Festival participants will have the opportunity to learn from a prominent BIPOC keynote speaker in the film industry. We will also hold Q & A sessions featuring emerging filmmakers, and there will be prizes to honor our award winners.
